could collide with an arctic blast. by thanksgiving, the east coast cocould be in a full-blown nor'easter. >> coast-to-coast, the country is feeling the impacts of an earlier than expected winter weather system. in texas, it's already proving fatal. icy road conditions causing this sdent along interstate ho. the texas department of public safety warns it will only get worse. >> anything from sleet to freezing manl. if it gets really bad, we're going to encourage folks to stay home. >> i heard a big crack and the house started banging and the things were falling and i thought it was a huge earthquake. >> flooding hit phoenix, arizona. but, now, the winter threat is on the move.
a dangerous system can has the potential to create chaos for millions of travelers. >> it's crazy. it's super, super crazy. i hope it's growing to be gone soon. >> right now, the sfoe impacts are being felt in new mexico, texas and much of the great plains. >> it feels like the wind is going to pull you over. it feels like it's dwroik to push you into the next lane. >> in ohio, snow and freezing templetures played out on saturday during the ohio state indiana football game in columbus. officials had to scrub the snow off of the goal line. unforcue gnatly, dangerous wind, sleet, snow and rain could be your travel companion. >> now we've got to bring in nick live from dallas. nick, you have seenl weather like this before, but i would

black ice, you can't tell. >> meteorologist karen mcguinness will have the latest on this winter storm and what it could mean for your holiday travel. that will be coming up at the wot tom of the hour. now, to that historic and long-negotiated nuclear agreement. it's a done-deal. well beyond the schedule, closed door sessions. we heard several times that they were so close to an agreement. and when they emerged, they were the smiles and the handshakes. president obama will ink the whole deal. but it's still -- there are some issues to be worked out. he has harolded the deal to stop iran's nuclear progress but allowi inin ining global choke . some republicans and democrats say that they were skeptical about this deal.
some going so far as to say that it will lead to war. we just foupd out that he has been firmly against any deal as most people know. so let's go live now to je knee geneva switzerland. is it important which side compromised the most? i mean, the main thing is that this's a deal on paper. >> yeah, i mean, i think that is the main thing. and at the heart of the deal was this compromise and this fudge over the issue of enrichment, iran yan inrichment. that's something that the united states, among others, refused to grant iran.
and it's something that held up these negotiations for some time. they had to really struggle with the wording that would make both sides happy. it ended up in the situation which is that the agreement doesn't specifically formally recognize iran's right to kpigs. and a couple of sites in the country to the level of five percent. so enough to produce now collar fuel, but not enough to produce weapons-grade enriched uranium. >> what's interesting is that i watched the shaking of hands and the hugs and the congratulations, it's only a six-month deal. in other words, this is a temporary solution. what will happen after those six months?
>> yeah, it is only a six-month deal. but it's also an indication of what a permanent deal is going to look like. it was meant to be an interim arrangement to build trust between the two sites. now what we're going to see is a process of intense diplomacy where they're going to make these things that have essentially already been talked about. make them more permanent and to decide the future of what the ie rain y iranian plabt.
>> well, the people this greept will affect most are the people of iran who have been living under very tight international sanctions for decades. >> this is why they voted. let's hear there some of toez ir iranians themselves. >> actually, i'm really happy about this. but my sisters, we're told all
the world knows rngs just for piece. how important is iran's leadership fighting for the rights for iran to enrich uranium and have a peaceful nuclear program. how important was that for you? >> no. >> not really? so it didn't matter to you. what about uranium enrichmented for you? was it important? >> it was important. >> yes, it was really important. other people can use this nuclear -- can use this. believe it or not, it is not fair. >> to gain the technology that you have right now. >> yes, yes, this technology. and this is really winning big for all the war. it's not -- you know we don't have any winner at the war. >> when there's war, there's no winners. >> all right. for many iranians, their nuclear

telephone. senator, thank you very much for joining us. >> time will tell, martin. i think the import of the decision announced last night. then, if that's the stated goal that everybody understands, then there's the choice. and the choice is between this agreement, which is a pause or the inevitable march to war. if the goal is that they're not going to have a nuclear weapon. and i choose the pause that is verifiable.
>> the sanctions, you know, some are suggesting that as a result of this new deal, it will make it difficult, that is, to continue the sanctions. >> no, i think, as you read the specifics of the agreement, that we're going to see exactly the opposite. we're going to see the iaea, international inspected tin the hospital tors in there. so we will have updates every week on what's happening. the sankctions are only going t apply to releasing some of their oil revenue $4 billion. but the additional oil revenue that will be coming in over this particular time period is another $15 billion that will still be squirrelled away in
escrowed funds. so when you read the details, i think they have this pretty good. and we'll see at the end of six months if the thing is complete. >> some of your colleagues are already saying that, really, this is just a deal that was rushed on the part of the united states to distract the american public from the disaster of obama care. want would you say? >> well, of course, i'd disagree with that. that's kind of silly. as a matter of fact, that's coming from people that if the president is for something, they're against it. and, you know, we've had dp-- a we've had just this gridlock of this excessive, rigidity and
number two, the partisan ship that's going only. so a statement like that is absolutely silly. >> where do you think this will go in the senate? what do you think the opinions of sfat tors overall will be? >> i think as we just talked ashlt, i think it's going to break out along party lines. i think there will be some cool heads in the republican party in the senate that will say let's give them these sanctions a chance to work and see if the greemt is fulfilled. and a permanent agreement is brought about. then, if not, then we go back today one. we vnt lost anything. we've certain lif tried. wu but we're back at the point at which we have to consider a military strike. >> senator bill nelson, thank you very much for joining us. >> thanks, martin.

president obama spoke today, in fact, just a short time ago. he told the prime minister that our two countries have the same goal, to ensure that iran doesn't get nuclear weapons. here's more on israel's reaction. >> there is a lot of frustration here in israel over the deal signed in geneva. prime minister benjamin called it a mistake. the world's most dangerous regime is on track for obtaining the most dangerous weapon in the world. for israel, it's an issue of all or nothing. they say if iran gives up its nuclear program, then sanctions can be lifted. but only then. israel is dismantling the center f fuges on the plant.
many here in israel feel like the regime in teheran just can't be trusted. the big question now is what is next? the prime minister gave this warning. >> we cannot and will not allow a regime that calls for the destruction of israel to obtain the means to achieve this goal. we will not allow iran to have a nuclear weapons capability. >> despite israel's objections, for now, it's about diplomacy and patience. it's unlikely israel will strike iran leaving them with their only option making sure iran lives up to their obligations. ian lee, cnn, jerusalem. >> i ran is just like north korea. but kochbts it anyway. >> why he believes is no north korea.
>> first of all, it's a member of the npt. secondly, they have engaged in a negotiation. thirdly, they have committed to have daily inspections of certain facilities. they have committed to restrict their activities with those nmgnmg inspections taking place. in addition to that, they are publicly committed that they are not going to wild a nuclear weapon. north korea already has. and has tested. and will not declare a policy of denuclearization. but let me be clearment we do that with eyes absolutely wide open. we have no illusions. you don't do this on the basis of somebody's statements to you. you do it on the basis of actions that can be verified and, moreover, we have kept the
basic architecture of the sanctions is staying in place. there is very little relief and we are convinced that over the next few months, we will really be able to put to the test what iran's sbengss are. >> so you, at this poichbt, trust the new president in iran. to be able to follow through. are you convinced that he has the mower to do so? because you know that the hardliners in iran x certainly are singing a different tune. absolutely i'm well aware of that. it's a question of having the verification and the intrusive
inspections. and the insights into the program and the commitments that can be held acountable so that you are, in fact, creating a fail save mechanism by which you are making your judgments. none of this, when you're dealing with nuclear weapons. it's not an issue of trust. as the old saying goes. >> he's goicng to be with the
libyan prime minister. the topics, peace talks tweenl israel and the palestinians and then the worsening violence in libya since the fall of moammar khadafi. >> mother nature is not unlds lining that in our favor. up next, we'll check in with meteorologist karen mcguinness who needs to be on the look out for a possible nor'easter. many cereals say they're good for your heart, but did you know there's a cereal that's recommended by doctors? it's post shredded wheat. recommended by nine out of ten doctors to help reduce the risk of heart disease. post shredded wheat is made with only one ingredient: one hundred percent whole grain wheat,

including threats of snow, ice, rain and high winds. here's the problem. the storm has the potential to get much worse as it moves east. cash mcguinness is there for a possible nor'easter. >> i vntd seen it. i vnt seen it looking this rough for quite some time. sooner or later over the next 72 hours, you're going to run into weather or be impacted by the weather. by that, i mean some of the airports. let's get bez si. show you where the layout is. ride along the gulf. it's going to be warm enough. it's just going to be rainfall. inconvenient for rainfall. the rain could be heavy at times. wait until you see this pink. that's where we're looking at that winterweatheryrksz mix. extending towards charlotte and into the up state of south

but right now, it looks like a snow wee event all the way up into new eng land. >> and there was this double whammy. wow, what a mess. thags. >> well, some say laughter is the best medicine when it comes to dealing with life's challenging. and my next guest simply knows that is true. we could all use a little laughter right now. i'll talk about how he can teach you how to enjoy life. but, first. >> before three-time champion gale deevers became world champion, she had to face a life-threatening human hurdle. >> reporter: for 15 years, gail was one of the fastest women in the word. known almost as well for her

>> it was so bad, doctors nearly amputated her feet. eventual eventually, doctors found a way to treat them. and a year and a half later, deavers was back in her running shoes competing in the 1992 olympics. today, she was married with two children and helping other kids achieve their goals. >> what is it that happened to me in my life that i can share with somebody else. you know?

if you like football, then what i'm about to tell you, you already know. if you don't like football, you should know this. a clash of football titans is going to happen tonight in foxboro, massachusetts. it's tom brady versus peyton manning. the new england patriots taking on the denver broncos. many people calling it the must-see game of the season. rachel is live inside of gillette stadium.
well, this has turned into the best quarterback rivalry in the nfl. this is the 14th time these two hall of famers have met. if you're not a football fan, you can appreciate how good these guys are. the anl letsism, pyrotechnics, things they can do with the ball and they are uncanny strategists and you feel when they go out there, they are both on a chess board, moving their minions across the field over here. tom brady holds a 9-4 edge over manning when they've gone head to head. manning is the first to tell you why brady is so good. take a listen. >> i think it's pretty well documented, my respect for tom, as a quarterback. the way he prepares. just the way he is better each season than he was the year before. >> he is a tough guy. he played through everything. and you know, a big game for both teams. you got to expect their best
players and and i'm sure all those guys will be ready to go. >> you know how much we love one on one rivalries in sports, right? the nfl doesn't let you get many of those because it is such a team game by nature. when have you a rivalry that develops between two stars at a time, fans get into it and tonight will be pretty special. >> just looking at you, looks extremely cold there. what's the impact going to be in the game? >> you don't feel i'm toward go swimming here, martin? come on. >> not quite. >> we have a temperature around 20 degrees right now. wind chill is about 10. it will dip down to 3. what is making it so cold is we have these gusts of wind up to 40 miles an hour. it is interesting. both of these guys play in cold weather cities.
but peyton manning is an addition. he used to play in the colts, so his cold weather record, not so good. manning is only 3-7 when the temperature dips below freezing. that could be a factor here tonight, although his broncos are the oned favored. we will have to see how it plays out. i can tell new my expert opinion right now, it's very, very cold. >> we will take that as certainly the expert you are. and the quarterbacks and their minions will be freezing their big butts off. thank you rachel, very much. nice to see you. moving on. and cold weather may play into this. shoppers are already cashing in on black friday bargains. but what does that mean for the deals that are usually offered the day after thanksgiving? well, looks like there's no need to worry any more. we'll tell you why.
